Call of Duty: Ghosts Devastation DLC Available May 8th For PS4, PS3 & PC

Press Release

 

Call of Duty®: Ghosts Devastation DLC Pack Coming to PlayStation and Windows PC Players Thursday, 8th May, 2014

Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Season Pass Owners Can Use Devastation’s All-New Ripper 2-in-1 Weapon Immediately

 

London, UK – 10th April, 2014 – Call of Duty®: Ghosts players on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC will have access toDevastation, the game’s second of four massive DLC Packs planned for this year, on 8th May, 2014. Devastation delivers four small-to-medium sized multiplayer maps, the all-new tactical 2-in-1 “Ripper” SMG/Assault Rifle and “Episode 2: Mayday” – the next chapter in Extinction’s four-part episodic narrative. Devastation is available a la carte, or as part of the discountedCall of Duty: Ghosts DLC Season Pass*.

Devastation’s new multiplayer maps include:

–  Ruins: A multi-level Mayan temple with verticality suited for long-range weapons and underground pathways perfect for close-quarters showdowns. Skilled players that find and complete the map’s unique Field Order will have the ability to become one of Hollywood’s most formidable action film stars and the galaxy’s ultimate hunter, the deadly Predator. As the Predator, players will brandish its dual wrist blades and shoulder-mounted plasma cannon, as well as be able to utilise the creature’s keen hunting abilities to track down enemy players.

–  Collision: The mangled remains of a cargo ship that’s crashed into a New York City bridge. The map’s tight corridors – made-up of burnt-out vehicles and demolished shipping containers – create a space perfect for run-and-gun players.

–  Behemoth: Players battle atop a massive excavation platform in South America with long sight lines ideal for long-range weapons, while the confined interiors of the platform’s control rooms make for intense SMG and Shotgun encounters.

–  Unearthed: A reimagined version of the fan-favourite map “Dome” from Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 3. “Unearthed” is full of new secrets and Cryptid artefacts for players to discover in this compact, versatile map, great for all play types.

Additionally, Call of Duty: Ghosts Devastation brings fans the next chapter in the ongoing episodic Extinction story with “Episode 2: Mayday.” In the aftermath of the events at the Nightfall Program facility in the Alaskan wilderness, the Quick Reaction Force boards a mysteriously abandoned Chinese research vessel adrift in the South Pacific Ocean. Armed with multiple, mod-able versions of the Venom-X weapons that harness the power of Cryptid technology, players will pursue Captain Archer in an attempt to uncover what’s become of Dr. Cross, all while battling against a new Cryptid enemy called the “Seeder,” and culminating with players facing-off against a massive, 400-foot tall Cryptid beast from the deep – the “Kraken.”

Finally, Devastation arms players with the all-new tactical 2-in-1 “Ripper,” a hybrid SMG/Assault Rifle. The “Ripper” is the perfect complement toDevastation’s new multiplayer maps, providing two different configurations – medium to short-range capability as an SMG and medium to long-range as an Assault Rifle. Additionally, Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Season Pass holders get instant access to the “Ripper” weapon and can use it in all Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer maps now.

Call of Duty: Ghosts game sold separately and is required to play theDevastation DLC Pack.

Press Release

STAND BY FOR THE TITANFALL BETA ON FEBRUARY 14

Register Today for a Chance to Participate in the Titanfall Closed Beta

 

 

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:13701:]]

The future of first person multiplayer action is upon us, and now’s your chance to be among the first to fall for Titanfall. Starting today, Respawn Entertainment and EA are inviting gamers to sign up and register for a chance to be a part of the upcoming Titanfall closed beta, a large-scale event coming February 14 to Xbox One and PC. For complete details on the beta and to register, please visit www.Titanfall.com/beta.

Already the winner of more than 80 awards from critics around the world,Titanfall is one of the most anticipated games of the year. Fans around the world from Tokyo to Seattle to London and beyond have been impressed with its thrilling and dynamic multiplayer gameplay featuring elite assault pilots and agile, heavily armored 24-foot tall titans.

The Titanfall beta will include three game modes – Attrition, Hardpoint Domination and Last Titan Standing. In Attrition, teams win by eliminating anyone or anything on the opposing side – pilots, titans and AI soldiers. In Hardpoint Domination, teams will capture and hold three hardpoints throughout the map to earn points and secure victory. And in Last Titan Standing, everyone on both teams starts with a titan in a round-based mode that ends when one team has lost all of their titans. There’s no respawning and no replacement titans can be called down.

Set in the near future on a distant frontier torn apart by war,  Titanfall drops players in the middle of a conflict between the Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation (IMC) and the Militia. The action is rapid and varied — featuring parkour-style wall running and massive double jumps. The freedom to shift back and forth between pilot and titan allows players to change tactics on the fly, attacking or escaping depending on the situation and extending the action vertically to new heights.

For more news about the Titanfall beta, including when it will begin, stay tuned to our official Titanfall channels on Facebook, Twitter and at www.titanfall.com. Titanfall is coming to Xbox One and PC on March 11, 2014 in North America and March 14, 2014 in the UK. The Xbox 360 version is being developed by Bluepoint Games and will be released on March 25, 2014 in North America and March 28, 2014 in Europe.

Call of Duty: Ghosts Onslaught DLC Available February 27th for PS3, PS4 & PC

Press Release

Call of Duty®: Ghosts Onslaught DLC Pack Available for PlayStation and Windows PC Players Thursday, 27th February, 2014.
 
Fans Can Purchase the Onslaught DLC Pack Individually, or as Part of the Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Season Pass Discounted* Bundle

London, UK – 5th February, 2014 – Call of Duty: Ghosts players on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC will have access to the first DLC Pack – Onslaught – on 27th February. Onslaught delivers four unique and classically designed Call of Duty multiplayer maps, the all-new “Maverick” dual-purpose Assault Rifle/Sniper Rifle, and the first installment in Extinction’s four-part episodic narrative, “Episode 1: Nightfall.”

New multiplayer maps in Onslaught include:

– Fog: A chilling homage to classic horror films, set alongside the banks of a murky lake, players skilled enough to pick up the map’s unique Field Order can become the embodiment of evil and don the mask of Michael Myers, one of cinema’s most iconic horror characters, as the entire soundscape changes to the eerily familiar Halloween Theme music.

– BayView: A coastal Californian boardwalk that offers players fast-paced run-and-gun gameplay amid a seaside town. Clever players will be able to climb onto the map’s moving trolley to engage enemies, as well as call in devastating artillery strikes from the Naval Destroyer anchored offshore.

–  Containment: This map drops players into a raging battle amidst a war-torn Mexican village, where the action centers on the crippled remains of a small bridge holding a hi-jacked truck leaking radioactive material.

– Ignition: Onslaught’s fourth map is a completely reimagined version of “Scrapyard” – the fan-favourite multiplayer map from Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 2, placing players into a deserted space launch facility with frenetic action amongst abandoned warehouses, flame trenches, a massive transport crawler, and dynamic map elements that can take players out if they’re not paying close attention.

Onslaught arms players with the Maverick, a deadly new, dual-purpose addition to their multiplayer arsenal. Outfitted with a lightweight wood stock and a digital screen display, players can choose to use the Maverick as either an Assault Rifle or Sniper Rifle, depending on their tactical needs.

Anchoring Onslaught is “Episode 1: Nightfall,” the first installment in Extinction’s new, four-part episodic narrative. As the initial foray into this single, connected story that will be told across each DLC Pack launch throughout the year, “Episode 1: Nightfall” takes fans to a remote research facility hidden deep within the Alaskan wilderness, where a small recon team must infiltrate the facility to find out what happened to the mysterious Nightfall Program. This expanded Extinction storyline introduces new characters, plus two all-new alien species, and debuts an exclusive Venom-X weapon that pulverises the Cryptids, as players delve deeper into the story of what happened following mankind’s first contact with the Cryptids in Colorado.

Fans can purchase Onslaught as either a standalone DLC Pack for a suggested retail price of $14.99, or purchase the Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC Season Pass.  Season Pass holders not only get all four epic DLC Packs  for the discounted suggested retail price of $49.99, but they also get instant access to the downloadable multiplayer map, “Free Fall,” as well as the Team Leader Digital Pack, which comes with a unique multiplayer character head, weapon camo, reticle, player patch, player card and player background.

Call of Duty: Ghosts game sold separately and is required to play this Map Pack.

GTA 5 Excitement and Next-Gen Considerations

GTA 5 Excitement and Next Gen Considerations

By: Lawrence Napoli

 

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:11008:]]

We are mere days away from the release of what everybody, their mothers, grandmothers and so on and so forth have dubbed as the biggest, best and de facto “Game of the Year” of 2013 in the form of Grand Theft Auto 5. Few video games these days have that legitimate, widespread and cultural excitement factor attached to its release, but then not every franchise is as impactful as the crown jewel of Rockstar’s library. GTA 5 was meant to have been released earlier than the tail end of this generation’s counsel cycle, but as it stands between Xbox 360 and PS3, the end has been loaded with so many software goodies that it begs the question whether we really “need” the Xbox One or PS4 this November. I certainly thought so since it’s been almost ten years since the HD generation launched with the 360 back in 2005. Thus, as soon as the rumors of the next gen started becoming more tangible, I began to consolidate my collection, played out the games I really wanted to revisit in my back log and traded in just about everything else once pre-orders commenced at GameStop. Yet here we are talking about one of the biggest franchises in the gaming industry extending the current generation’s life cycle well into the next as nothing has been officially announced regarding this game on newer machines . . . yet.

“You ain’t gotta like it ‘cause the hood gone love it.”
GTA 5 is currently the most expensive game created in video game history with a budget around $265 million dollars employing over 300 designers, artists and programmers to bring us the next evolution of GTA. If anyone had any doubts regarding “Triple A” game production mirroring Hollywood, just consider the immensity of that starting dollar amount. With such a huge investment on the front end, I found it incredibly curious how Rockstar had zero plans (publicly) to have this incredible game release with the next generation counsels. One would think it a no-brainer considering it would be an automatic attached software sale linked to every hardware unit sold. Other major franchises such as Call of Duty and Assassin’s Creed are completely on board with this initiative and releasing their software on as many platforms as possible maximizes their profitability. Yes, Activision and Ubisoft are fans of money, but that doesn’t mean Rockstar isn’t. Pre-orders for GTA 5 on Xbox 360 and PS3 alone seem to have units sold; outpacing even the annual Call of Duty juggernaut. Clearly, the people want their GTA now!

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:11007:]]

“All you hear is radio ga-ga.”
For me, the only thing more exciting than the release of a marquee game is the release of a brand new and more powerful platform. When it was announced that GTA 5 would not launch with the next generation I was disappointed; so much so that I was fully prepared to overlook GTA 5 this year because I knew (as everyone else seems to know) that this game will eventually exist for Xbox One and PS4 (and PC) at some point and probably sooner than later in 2014. This is a foregone conclusion what with Rockstar’s history of “Game of the Year” re-releases for several titles in their library. Money seems to get tighter and tighter, and so I chose the next generation plus Watch Dogs as my primary entertainment later this year, but then I had an epiphany. I was honestly banking on two things to hold me over between now and November: BioShock Infinite DLC and The Last of Us multiplayer. Unfortunately, the release timing for BioShock’s DLC has been sluggish and TLoU multiplayer, though satisfying at first, has become bland and frustrating recently. I found myself with a two month dead zone that nothing else in my back log would fulfill, and then details regarding GTA Online (the multiplayer extension of GTA 5) started to cycle about the internet and I was sold on getting on board ASAP! GTA Online, though not quite an MMO evolution of the franchise, offers the potential immersion, customization and variety of a multiplayer experience that GTA 4 failed to fully realize and few could have predicted as possible on the current generation. Rockstar’s well conceived advertising and information control campaign regarding this game was very compelling and with various online media entities broadcasting so much potential, I simply could not miss out.

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:11010:]]

“I don’t think Hank done it this way.”
As anticipated as GTA 5 is, the timing of its release is curiously atypical for a “Triple A” title of its caliber. A game this big usually drops somewhere in the middle of a generation where developers have had plenty of experience with the hardware and the consumer base is already established and continues to grow. Software releases at the end of a generation are populated with more titles that exist on both generations than exclusives on one or the other to accommodate consumers who jump in feet first as well as those that hold back on the next generation. However, it is inevitable that developers will eventually cease all production on old technology. So far, Rockstar is banking on the current gen, but the dawn of a new generation means the virtual countdown for the current one has begun. We will see GTA 5 on next gen machines, but that game has been in development for a number of years and sometimes making a “port” of a finished product to run on beefier machines that can deliver better graphics and functionality isn’t as simple and cost-effective as one would think. Rockstar wants some return on its investment now before going further into the hole.

If Rockstar was determined to release this game this year, why do it so close to the launch date of the next generation for which you won’t even be participating in initially? First, you cannot argue with the allure of a Fall release and the enhanced sales every software title receives thanks to its proximity to the holidays. Historically, for games to take full advantage of retail promotions directly linked to Christmas, they tend to release in October. The genius of releasing in September gives GTA a full month of sales unopposed by any other major title which won’t appear until the likes of Lego: Marvel Super Heroes, Batman: Arkham Origins, Assassin’s Creed 4 and Battlefield 4 release in late October. By then, GTA Online will have hit its stride allowing GTA 5 to continue to compete with the rest of the major titles for the remainder of the Fall. This also leaves the window wide open for Rockstar to re-release GTA 5 with any and all DLC and enhanced features for the next generation as a “new” game based on a completed product sometime in the future.

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:11009:]]

Will the next generation release in November break this game’s momentum? I actually don’t think so, and the main reason for this will be consumer prudence regarding the new machines. Yes, it’s true that this upcoming generation has the best pre-order numbers of any previous generation, but the bulk of a counsel’s sales success is not solely determined by the launch window. Not every game enthusiast has $4-500 dollars to get in on the ground floor, and the shear existence of new machines means that the old ones will continue to get marked down, making the current generation much more lucrative especially when games like GTA 5 exist for machines that continue to get less expensive. Both Microsoft and Sony are talking about the healthy legs left on their current machines despite the excitement surrounding their new ones and this can only mean good things for GTA and Rockstar.

Hardcore gamers are the ones that are fueling the hype for the Xbox One and PS4, and given the choice between playing GTA 5 on current or next gen counsels, most would prefer a more powerful machine. It remains to be seen how “upset” consumers who invest in the new technology right away might be once GTA 5 releases for the next generation, but much of that will be determined when that actually happens. If GTA 5 comes out for XB1 and PS4 in January of 2014, for instance, we might be witness to some severe responses on the internet. It would be interesting to see if Rockstar would spearhead an upgrade campaign similar to what GameStop is doing in regards to consumers who want a certain game now, would also want it for next gen counsels, but don’t want to pay $59.99 twice for the same game. Such an incentive would be a show of good faith to everyone who bought into GTA 5 immediately, regardless of the release date of its evolved iteration, and I would like to think Rockstar has some kind of plan addressing the next gen conundrum that doesn’t involve purely sticking it to the consumer.

PlanetSide 2 Launch Trailer Now Online (PC)

Press Release

 

PLANETSIDE®2 IS NOW AVAILABLE

 

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:4218:]]

SAN DIEGO – Nov. 20, 2012 – The war is inevitable. Sony Online Entertainment, LLC (SOE) today announced the availability of its award-winning, highly anticipated massively multiplayer online first-person shooter (MMOFPS) PlanetSide 2 in North America and Europe. Players must enlist in one of three Empires – Terran Republic, New Conglomerate or Vanu Sovereignty – to fight in an epic war for control of the planet of Auraxis. An unparalleled gaming experience, players engage in extreme aerial, ground, vehicular and hand-to-hand battles alongside and against thousands of players in massive environments.

“PlanetSide 2 sets the new standard for shooters,” said John Smedley, President of Sony Online Entertainment. “With thousands of players fighting simultaneously across several beautiful, massive continents, the size and intensity of PlanetSide 2 has no equal. You’ve never played anything like it.”

PlanetSide 2 takes all the groundbreaking features from the original game – massive multiplayer battles, distinct empires to rally around, and enormous continents where intense ground and air combat unfold – and adds features that modern gamers have come to expect of the FPS and MMO genres. With advanced technology, years of gamer feedback, and a new SOE proprietary MMO game engine called ForgeLight™, PlanetSide 2 offers a truly competitive and visceral FPS experience with massive warfare, massive customization and massive community.

“We set out to create a massive, unprecedented game, and we succeeded.PlanetSide 2 will break records for its size and combat,” said Matt Higby, Creative Director of PlanetSide 2 at Sony Online Entertainment. “Now, it’s the players’ turn to make history. The war stories of brutal combat, acts of valor, casualties and victories from beta testing have been epic. But, the slate is clean, and the game has launched. It’s time to create legends.”

Players can opt to play as one of six classes to aid their chosen Empire in global domination. They’ll fight for control of key territories and valuable resources on three playable continents – Indar, Esamir and Amerish. With an extensive skill tree and free-form class-based system, players will be able to customize their soldier, weapons and vehicles to match their play-style, as well as the needs of their squad, outfit or empire. Battles can last for days or weeks, so players will need to build alliances and specialized combat outfits to take on long-term strategic and tactical initiatives. With aircraft and ground vehicles, as well as infantry combat, the battles will be larger and more intense than ever before. 

As players earn battle experience, they’ll increase their certifications and unlock access to new roles and extensive customization options, along with a variety of weapons and vehicles.

“PlanetSide 2 is designed to enable player-driven combat where teammates rely on each other to succeed and survive. With so much control in the hands of the players, every day we learn more about what they can and will do in Auraxis,” said Higby. “ We’ve launched, but development will never be done. We have tons of plans in place and content in development to help fuel years of battle.”

In addition to the unmatched size and scale of battles, PlanetSide 2 will be the first game to integrate live broadcasting functionality through the largest video platform and community for gamers, Twitch, allowing players the ability to stream gameplay directly to the Twitch platform with a single click.

PlanetSide 2 is now available as a “Free-To-Play. Your Way.™” title on PC systems via digital download. For players who are interested in an enhancedPlanetSide 2 experience, a Premium Membership option is available starting at US $9.99/month and includes scalable gains for resources, XP and passive cert points. Additionally, Premium Members will receive priority log-in queue access, early access to new cosmetic items and a monthly Station Cash bonus. Players who maintain their membership over time will accrue enhancements to their benefits, and players who purchase their membership in multi-month blocks will receive an increased benefit gain immediately.

Players can also purchase additional in-game content with the US $15.00PlanetSide 2 game card sold exclusively at participating North American GAMESTOP retail locations. In addition to the choice of 1500 Station Cash™ or 30 days of Membership time, the all-new game card will grant an exclusivePlanetSide 2 virtual item, the NS11 Rifle.

The Walking Dead Video Game Now Available (PS3, XBox 360, PC)

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:1585:]]One thing about this game that had me worried was whether it was going to be another Dead Rising — which I find utterly boring!

Or if it was going to be another dull arse shooter game.

Well, I downloaded the demo and played for a bit — and it seems to be really cool!

Actually the game seems more like an RPG than a shooter.

I’m not a gamer, but the controls are new to me. You walk with one of the sticks and use the other stick for your actions. And what’s cool about the game is you choose how your story proceeds and how you interact with other people. And I think the game “remembers” what you do because a message will pop up noting just that. So what you say and do might come into play later: like when you talk to a cop and tell him who you are.

The Walking Dead Video Game also seems just as scary and creepy as the TV show and comic book as well. The mood and setting fits, and I was sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happens next! The fight scene with a zombie was pretty gruesome — I bashed its brains in with a hammer! But, again, it wasn’t your typical smash and bash game by wildly pressing controls in hopes your character makes contact. You have to choose the right moment and button in order to use your weapon.

Seems you need your brains more than your brawn to survive Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead Video Game — so don’t let any Walkers get near you for a bite!

I think the game is only around $20, so I’ll definitely be getting the full version.
